Using the Favorites Widget on iPhone

How To Use the Favorites Widget on iPhone.


Last week, I covered how to set up Widgets in the Today View. And previously, I walked you through setting up Favorites in the Phone App. Today, we’ll combine the two—creating a fast way to access your favorite contacts.

  1. Follow the previous instructions on Adding Widgets.
  2. Then, add the Favorites Widget

This new Widget shows you your first four favorites as you have organized them in the Phone App. You can see an additional four by touching Show More on the right side of the Widget.

If you want to see your Favorites in a different order, simply rearrange them in the Phone App.

Now, you can reach out to any Favorite without unlocking your iPhone (if you have enabled Allow Access When Locked).
